February 25 Birthday Personality: The Guru

The Guru

Your greatest challenge is…

to think less and do more

The way forward is…

to understand that although there is a place for planning and strategy, to make a real impact you have to put your money where your mouth is.

You’re drawn to people born on…

October 24 to November 22

Disinterested in worldly ambition, both of you have idealism and passion to share, and this can create a gratifying union.

Luck maker

Know when to pounce

If an opportunity presents itself, behave like a lucky person and grab it. There is no such thing as the right time, so be ready to grab luck when it happens, even if you don’t feel prepared.

Although people born on February 25 have a high degree of self-confidence and are fiercely individualistic, they often believe that the collective is more important than the personal. They can be radical in their desire to right social wrongs, being selfless in the pursuit of their goals. There is a touch of the guru about them, in that they desire not only to master their own destiny but to help others master theirs.

People born on this day never try to be anything by themselves. They have a simple, unaffected style that can cross boundaries, helping them relate to people from all walks of life. Everyone they meet is impressed by their honesty, optimism and desire to make a difference. As a result, they are good team players, preferring to take the role of advisor or guru rather than leader. They are the consultants with the winning formula, the brilliant teachers guiding and inspiring the next generation, the coaches who dedicate themselves to the welfare of the team, the directors with their eye on what the camera and the world see.

These people are often found working their magic on the sidelines; nothing gives them more satisfaction than engineering success for others. They can come across as silent and detached, but to those who know them well they are capable of making the most profound and helpful observations. They should beware, however, that they do not turn their greatest strengths into weaknesses by becoming so lost in the world of thought that they become secretive, negative and out of touch with reality. Fortunately, between the ages of twenty-five and fifty-four they become more self-assertive, experiencing an occasional need to step from the shadows onto center stage. Then, after the age of fifty-four, they seek more calm and steadiness in their lives.

Above all, February 25 individuals have a team-player mentality, a profound sense of justice and a desire to help the worthy win. This is a powerful combination that can inspire others to transform difficult circumstances into something better.

On the dark side

Obsessed, unrealistic, secretive

At your best

Intense, spiritual, ambitious

Love Don’t stay cool

There is a tendency for people born on February 25 to play it quite cool when it comes to affairs of the heart, perhaps because they have been hurt or let down in the past. It is of vital importance for them to experience passion, and to learn to give and take in a relationship. Playing it safe, for once, isn’t recommended. When they see an opportunity for love and intimacy, they should embrace it.

Health Remember you are human!

People born on this day are capable of great self-sacrifice and discipline and as a result they may neglect their health and well-being in the process. It is important for them to remember that the physical aspect of life is just as important as the mental. They should make sure their diet contains a wide variety of healthy foods and that they get plenty of moderate exercise, such as cycling, running and swimming. They also need to make sure they get plenty of rest to give their overactive brains a period of quiet reflection. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color red will help make them feel more passionate and energetic.

Career Born lecturers

These people are born teachers, gurus, guides, coaches, advisors, counselors, psychologists, mentors, and any other career that involves inspiring and guiding others toward success. If they wish to explore their creative potential, they may find themselves drawn toward careers in writing or art; if they wish to explore their spirituality, they may be drawn toward careers in religion or philosophy. Other careers that might suit include health care, administration and social reform.

Destiny To inspire and guide others to a better place

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to get involved more. Once they feel comfortable leaving the sidelines, their destiny is to teach, inspire and guide others to a better place.
